With employment in the United States increasing in the first quarter of 2010, a moderate recovery in the labor market appears under way. However, The Conference Board’s outlook for the U.S. is forecasting the unemployment rate to remain above 9.5 percent through 2011, while the Employment Trends Index has been signaling a return to employment growth. A closer look at the numbers behind these forecasts illuminates the various components of a labor market recovery.

We will discuss what needs to happen for full labor market recovery, and provide some thoughts about what to look for in the coming months, including a closer look at which occupations are more likely to survive the downturn, and what this implies for the outlook for compensation costs.

This webcast will discuss:

  • Insights from The Conference Board’s Employment Trends Index
  • A comparison of employment growth rates by occupation
  • The implications for labor costs and talent management strategies

Audience: This webcast is designed for human resources and talent management professionals responsible for recruiting, hiring, workforce planning, development or compensation & benefits. Executives and business leaders responsible for strategic level personnel decisions will also find it useful.
